Petra has previously been linked to "You're Beautiful" singer James Blunt, as well as actor Sean Penn.

Petra suffered a broken pelvis and internal injuries in Thailand as a result of the tsumani in 2004 that claimed her then-fiance, but she survived by clinging to a palm tree for more than eight hours.
